Pierce scored nine points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt) to go along with five rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes Monday against the Hornets.

Pierce and most of the Wizards starting lineup weren't needed to play heavy minutes Monday as they cruised to a big victory. Even when Pierce is playing more minutes, he's not nearly the scoring option that he once was as he has scored less than 10 points in six of his last 13 games.

Pierce (knee) will return to the court against the Pistons on Saturday, The Washington Post reports.

Pierce (knee) will not play in Friday's game against the Sixers, CSN Washington reports.

Pierce banged his knee during Tuesday's game against the Warriors and will now miss a second straight outing due to the ailment. Although his knee bruise isn't particularly worrisome, it's still unclear if Pierce will be able to return for Saturday's subsequent contest. In the meantime, expect some combination of Rasual Butler, Otto Porter and Martell Webster to fill Pierce's minutes at small forward.

Pierce is a late scratch Wednesday against the T-Wolves.

He suffered a bruised knee in Tuesday's game, and despite insisting afterward that he wouldn't miss any time, he will watch the second game of the back-to-back set from the bench. Look for Rasual Butler, Otto Porter and Martell Webster to all see a slight uptick in minutes Wednesday as a result.

Pierce banged his knee in Tuesday's game, but he says he will play Wednesday against Minnesota, the Washington Post's Michael Lee reports.

He will probably want to take the court against ex-teammate Kevin Garnett in Garnett's debut with the T-Wolves. Pierce had a nice game Tuesday, but given that Wednesday will be the second game of a back-to-back, it may be best to look for a different option in daily leagues.
